Humans, Animals—It's One Health. Or Is It?
Martin Enserink
Science 15 January 2010:
Vol. 327. no. 5963, pp. 266 - 267
DOI: 10.1126/science.327.5963.266-b

Humans, Animals--It's One Health. Or Is It? -- Enserink 327 (5963): 266 -- Science
excerpt from above:
Quote:
A "holistic approach" and "synergism" working for the health of all species. Those are the buzzwords of the One Health movement, which aims to bring veterinary and human health closer together. Because people and animals form such a close-knit ecosystem—and most new or re-emerging diseases come from animals—the classic divide between veterinarians and doctors is hampering disease control, three scientists argued when they began promoting the concept 3 years ago. But the Dutch Q-fever outbreak provides a vivid example of how those two worlds often don't get along, especially when the stakes are different for each.
